Of course, they re released that yes, um and then mine was uh, the hornet, oh yes, i went to the hornet and then i went to the uh marui coorsmelling thunderbird, yes, awesome by the way, there’s a severe rig review and an open boxing of a vintage Complete kit on the channel i’ll link that in the description, it’s pretty sick yeah – that was, that was a few years back eh, but yeah i’m, glad that i restored my vintage uh marui and have one mint box too.
